RESEARCH YOU CAN USE: AVOCADOS, SATIETY AND GLUCOSE LEVELS
Are your clients falling victim to the 3 p.m. slump? What if helping them stay fuller longer could be as simple as adding avocado to their favorite lunch? Researchers have investigated the impact of incorporating fresh Hass avocado at lunch—by either substituting or adding it to the meal—on satiety, blood sugar and insulin response, and subsequent food intake.
RECIPE MAKEOVERS: SUBSTITUTING WITH AVOCADOS
Unfortunately, most Americans aren’t meeting the recommended intake for fruit and fiber, and they are overconsuming saturated fat. Enter the amazing avocado! Creamy and satisfying, fresh avocados are a good source of fiber and are the only fruit that contains good mono- and polyunsaturated fats. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, using these good fats to replace saturated fats or trans fats in the diet can also help reduce bad cholesterol levels in the blood.
So versatile, fresh avocados can be used as a substitute or addition in any meal or dish.
